A special thank you to Karen Reardon for letting us use her quilt, “Sunshine and Shadows” for the demonstration!

  1. Aimee,
    You are an excellent teacher. Your instructions are done so well and I do appreciate that you share your skills with us. Thank you!

  2. Hi Aimee,

    Just enjoyed these instructions. I am preparing to bind a quilt I recently quilted and am sure glad I reviewed these instructions first! It’s always wonderful to see your cheerful face. We miss you here in California.


  3. Hi Aimee,
    I really loved this tutorial, it was very clear and informative and you make it look so easy. I only wish I had watched this yesterday before I squared up my last quilt as I would have done a better job.

  4. Aimee,

    Thanks so much for the video. I have looked everywhere for clear instructions for a beginner and your lesson was by far the best and most informative.

  5. Aimee: Fantastic video. I am a visual learner; therefore, this video is perfect for my learning style. Continue working on other how-to videos to share with others. Thank you so much.

  6. Thank you so much for the tutorial. Finally someone showed squaring up a real quilt, and not just 4 squares. I have done this many times, but I always like a refresher before I do it again. Always looking for new ideas.

  7. I am doing a t-shirt quilt and the bottom is 4 inches wider than the top. How do I go about squaring this up before I add borders.

    1. those reusable bags are lovely!! love the design!! oh i really hope i get chosen to i canget one!! anyway, i am all for reusable bags… i don't like using plastic bags for grocery (unless of course i really don't have anywhere to put stuff in). we pay for our plastic bags here — .05 cents. but it is not the cost, these plastic bags will end up in the trash! oh well… go reusable bags!!

    2. it all Doug. Will you be priority posting this commentary to Rupert Murdoch to show that his opinion can occasionally be matched in another country? In fact, you should send it to every member of every level of U.S. government that supports the N {“N” = nutcases only welcome to join} R {“R” = required to have no conscience or common sense} A {“A” = absolutely blind to the fact that they are the ones promoting weapons of mass destruction}…AKA as agroup of bullies with an overinflated entitlement complex who believe that non-supporters are idiots.

    Thank you for the video and actually using a quilt. The other videos I wathced used small quilt that were not helpful. I really appreciate you help.

    1. Večeras sam prvi put bio u kafani Znak pitanja, sa ženom na kafi. Odlična kafa koja je poslužena na nesvakidaÅ¡nji način. Na poslužavniku dobijeÅ¡ staru džezvu, ratluk i kocku Å¡ećera. O enterijeru ne bih da pričam jer je jedinstven i samim tim i vredan…cene su normalne!

    2. sunt convinsa ca este foarte misto. dior este, la urma urmei, zeul parfumurilor pentru mine 🙂 dar, problema era alta si nu vreau sa mai repet ca sunt tare amarata cu finantele :)) dar lasa ca ma fac eu mare si bogata si imi cumpar cate 3 parfumuri din fiecare model :))

  9. That was one of the best video I have seen, great presentation, very easy to follow. Thank you so much for doing this for us quilters. I love your quilt, is there a pattern you can share or let us know where to purchase? I also love your colors, would love to know those too, if possible and I hope I am not being too presumptuous. Thank you again. Hope to hear from you.
